Scholarship Recipients

EAH Housing provides a place to call home for more than 7,000 children and teenagers at affordable housing properties throughout California and Hawai’i. To support these students as they prepare for life on their own, the organization sponsors the EAH Housing Rebecca W. Watkin Scholarship, named in honor of the late housing advocate, Rebecca W. Watkin.

The Scholarship Fund is designed to ensure long term success for students. Throughout the course of their college education, scholarship recipients receive annual awards. As opposed to one-time grants, these ongoing scholarships enable students to continue shaping their futures as they pursue and complete their higher education.
